I don't know--probably not. I was catching up on the last day or so, and it seemed to me that things were skewing a bit in one direction. Probably just me. I've always stayed out of the political fray , but just wanted to give props to Johnny for wading in where I fear to tread.

I was teaching the kids about George Washington today. He did not have the best personality in the world but his strong point was he considered us all to be Americans.

Both the left and the right have demonized the other over the years." It just makes me want to cry, what's so funny about peace, love & understanding".

Amen, Chris...I strongly believe in one's right to one's own opinion. I have several good friends on the other side of the political spectrum from me, and it does not affect how I feel about them in the least. We are all Americans, citizens of the greatest nation this world has perhaps ever seen.
Nick Lowe has it right--and he said it when the Punks were righteously PO'd at peace-loving hippies and the like

YEP. Just like a society that evolves to having only two classes is destined for a revolt, and our middle class is shrinking everyday. I wish us regular folks could get it together and see we have a helluva lot more in common than we think.

there are some that actively try to create 2 distinct classes that fight. Hitler, Lenin, Castro and more used the same OLD game of divide and conquer. Setting up a scapegoat, or class of people to fight each other, then swooping in to save the day.
VIVA THE REVOLUTION! EVIL BILL GATES! EVIL JEWS! EVIL CHRISTIANS! EVIL GLOBAL WARMERS!
Same old game- new "evil dangers" oooooooooh! (yawn)
